VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 24, 2013) - Aegean Metals Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AGN) ("Aegean" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has modified the terms of the private placement financing (the "Private Placement") previously announced (see press release dated April 1, 2013). The revised terms of the Private Placement are: up to 6,200,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.10 per Unit for an aggregate subscription price of up to $620,000. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of 2 years.
The revised Private Placement terms come on the back of Teck's decision to exercise its Back-In Option at the Ergama property, a high sulfidation epithermal gold prospect located in the Balikesir Province, western Turkey (see press release dated May 28, 2013). Teck will become the project operator at Ergama during the back-in period.
Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for new project generation, to fund additional exploration activities on the Company's Hot Maden gold-base metal property in northeast Turkey, as well as general and administrative expenses.
The private placement is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
